schema:description""Charles Darwin (1809-82) is one of the most significant natural scientists in history. His work changed the way human beings saw themselves and the world they inhabited. Darwins theory of evolution by natural selection has provided an impetus for teaching and research in biology and geology and created enduring controversies in disciplines as diverse as psychology and theology. Published to coincide with Darwins 200th birthday (12 February 1809), Tom Frame examines Darwins influence on Australian thinking. He provides useful contextual material on Darwins life and times, including his 1836 visit to Australia in HMS Beagle; the background to historic disputes and contemporary debates about Darwins motivations and methods; his scientific conclusions and their social consequences; and, outlines the various ways in which Darwins work continues to shape Australian public policy and private behaviour. 'Evolution in the Antipodes' will interest students of Australian history and specialist readers in the fields of maritime affairs, natural science and theistic religion.--'Provided by publisher."@en
